Leon Hall

By

Positional Rankings: QB RB FB WR TE OT OG C - DE DT ILB OLB S CB - K P

Position: Cornerback

School: Michigan

Status: Senior

Height: 5-11

Weight: 195

40-Yard Dash: 4.45 (EST)

Positives:


Hall is physical enough to play with the big receivers, yet quick and able enough to cover the quick receivers. Excels in zone coverage, and is very good at man-to-man. He's a smart and very fluid athlete without a major hole in his game. Hall can come up and support the run well and is an excellent blizter.

Negatives:


Hall is fast, but doesn't possess the elite speed of a true #1 NFL corner. As a result, he can have trouble covering speed routes, flys, posts, and corners. He's also not the greatest leaper, so he'll have trouble in the red zone against taller receivers.

Overview:


Hall should be a solid corner in the NFL with his abilities. A common comparison he will draw will likely be to Ronde Barber. It looks like he should continue the strong recent tradition of Michigan corners, and will likely be taken somewhere between the 10th and 20th picks.
